I am a mixed media artist, residing in Huson, near Missoula, Montana.
My love for exploration and experimentation is the underlying basis for all my work. I am both formally educated and self-taught and I create in order to satisfy a need to add beauty to the world, to make it a little nicer, one artwork at a time. I use my hands to express that which my words can’t. With that being said, my work is not a monologue: My loose, intuitive and almost abstract style invites the viewer to participate, to bring their inner world into my art. My paintings are bright yet delicate and they combine realism and abstraction; I seek to find balance, resulting in a poetic atmosphere, inspired by nature and the west.
I am currently immersed in exploration of the ancient medium of encaustic wax – creating paintings, 3D work and monotypes.
